Hardscape North America Is Going to Be Big (Oct 18-20 in Louisville), Expanded Show Floor Sells Out

With more exhibits than ever and attendee registration 21 percent ahead of this time last year, Hardscape North America, set for October 18-20, is already breaking records. When the North Wing exhibit hall sold out in April, show organizers expanded into the expo center’s West Wing. Now that space is sold out and 207 companies will cover 56,850 sq. ft. indoors and 14,300 sq. ft. in the Hardscape House.

On the show floor, attendees will find more than 60 companies that didn’t exhibit at HNA last year – all ready to showcase their latest innovations. Natural stone providers will be well represented with 15 companies in the new Natural Stone Pavilion and another 15+ throughout the show. Outdoors, attendees can get hands-on with a wide variety of products from installation equipment and sealers to fire pits and pools.

The West Wing expansion brings space not only for more exhibitors, but exciting features to enhance the HNA experience:

  • The inaugural HNA Cornhole Tournament promises friendly competition Wednesday and Thursday with daily winners taking home cash prizes. Teams of two can sign up when registering for the show or by visiting their registration dashboard.
  • Free made-to-order HNA t-shirts will be available at the Halstead Media booth in the West Wing (one per person, while supplies last).
  • Daily West Wing Giveaways will offer prizes ranging from drones and RTIC coolers to gift cards.
  • Also in the West Wing, attendees will find the popular Drone Zone, golf simulators, New Product Showcase and more.

“If you’re a hardscaper, landscaper or dealer who has ever thought about attending HNA, this is the year,” said Bob Thomas, President & CEO of the Concrete Masonry & Hardscapes Association (CMHA), which produces HNA. “The energy is high as a record number of exhibitors prepare to showcase their new products. Many have also stepped up to sponsor new and returning features that will make the trip to Louisville a worthwhile and memorable experience.”

HNA Registration

Registration to attend HNA is available for $50* (fees increase October 16) and includes access to the co-located Equip Exposition, adding landscape tools and power equipment to the mix – both indoors and in the 30-acre Outdoor Demo Yard.
